Colas – we go further
Colas is an ambitious, award-winning business, delivering sustainable solutions for the design, building and maintenance of the UK’s transport infrastructure. We have unrivalled expertise based not only on our long history but also on the strength we derive from being part of the world-leading International Colas Group. The Group has excellent R&D facilities, giving us access to innovative new products, processes and ideas.
Colas understand the importance of a client-focused approach and are committed to delivering a service that directly addresses the needs of our clients. We listen to them and invest time in understanding their needs. We develop long term relationships with our clients and promote innovative, sustainable solutions to their problems.
By ensuring that our front line teams understand the impact of their activities on communities we minimise disruption during our operations and leave a legacy for the future.
As part of our continuous improvement programme, Colas uses Recognised for Excellence (R4E), part of the EFQM Levels of Excellence scheme, as a means of measuring the progress we are making as an organisation towards excellence and best practice. The EFQM Excellence scheme is a European corporate certification programme. It involves a full and rigorous assessment against the EFQM Excellence Model which is used by some 30,000 organisations throughout Europe. So for us, the R4E 5 star award is a particularly important measure of our achievement as we strive for sustainable excellence in everything we do.
